My LO just turned 6 months and I am needing some advice. During the day he falls asleep after his bottle or in his swing every 2 hours or so. At night our routine starts at 5pm when I bathe him then we do books and puzzle play then he will eat his baby food, at about 6:30-7 he takes a bottle and puts himself to sleep on a pillow in our bed. Anytime I have tried putting him to sleep in his crib when he is very drowsy he wakes up screaming. I have tried the every 5 minutes reassure him he's okay, don't pick him but he ends up making himself so upset that he throws up all over himself, the sheets, the wall, the floor. Has anyone else gone through anything like this? I feel like I have tried everything and I refuse to let him cry in his throw up. I've tried the whitenoise cd, music cd, nothing will calm him down. Not even me picking up calms him down until about 10min or so after I've gotten him.
- I am not looking for criticism, this sleeping arrangement isn't ideal nor what I want. I'm a first time mom just trying to do what is best for my family.
